Throughout this country the question of child labor and its attendant evils has become a serious problem, and in several States similar committees or organizations had been formed to deal with this question within their several State limits. The chief purpose of this national committee is to organize additional State committees and to act as a general committee with the object of securing better laws in the several States, and, if possible, more uniform laws and a more general enforcement of such legal protection for the children of this country.

To make this as widely representative as possible and to emphasize its national significance and scope of action it now seeks incorporation from Congress for the purposes set forth in this report and particularly set forth in section 2 of the act. For this reason it was not deemed expedient to attempt incorporation under the laws of any State, and the laws of the District of Columbia render it impossible to secure incorporation under the general statute now in operation for the reason that none of the incorporators are residents of the District of Columbia, and the law requires, in subchapter 3 of the Code, that a majority of the incorporators of an organization of this character shall be citizens of the District of Columbia.

To conform to this requirement would destroy the widely representative character of the committee.

The incorporators named in the bill constitute the board of trustees of the organization. They are all nonresidents of the District of Columbia. The purposes of this organization are purely educational and philanthropic. It conducts no business for private profit and has no other object than those set forth in section 2 of the bill under consideration. It represents a great work and strikes at a great social evil. It certainly merits favorable consideration in Congress.
